A HALL OF KEYS AND NO DOORS is Here! In the Wild!

Today has been kind of a blur already, but I wanted to do a post all official-like to celebrate that release day has arrived! A HALL OF KEYS AND NO DOORS also got an amazing first review from someone whose name, by sheer serendipity, is the same as the loved…

Letters to the Emmie-nator: Or, How To Stay Productive

This morning I woke up at the butt-crack of not even dawn. Yesterday, my partner and I took an Unplug Day, wherein we avoided our phones, the internet, and outside. We woke up, started a puzzle, made some delicious breakfast (cheesy eggs and french toast sticks with a berry syrup),…

Oh my dog, you lot. I am so excited to be writing this post. This book is something special to me. Each book I write contains parts of me, but this one took that to a new level (as is the other book I’m working on now). I think that’s…

You’re Allowed to Avoid the Frost Trolls

The other day, I was playing some Skyrim. Mostly I wanted to get past a certain point where you meet a bunch of nearly-identical old men with grey beards (called greybeards, because imagination) and learn how to sprint really fast by channeling your dino– I mean dragon DNA with MAGIC….

Where the Words Come From

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where the stories we write come from. Sure, we get our ideas and we jot them down or plot them out, but what interests me right now is the deeper levels of what makes it onto the page. Writing is an interesting dichotomy….

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really Really Want

No, this post isn’t about the Spice Girls. Or it is, feel free to sing along. This has been a rough summer in pretty much every way. One of the big themes has been me reevaluating exactly what it is I want from a writing career. And the answer right…

80 Years to Forget: We Can Do Better

In 2012-2014, I had the opportunity to be involved with Scotland’s referendum for independence with National Collective.
